Education

Ages 12 to 18

Ideal for classes comparing civilizations and world history. In 1972, 25 high school students from Hamilton visited China. They were the first group of North American students to visit China since it was founded in 1949. Discuss China’s relationship with Canada. Why is China important for Canadians? Is China a communist country? Some people think China is a threat. Why? The Chinese economy has had an astonishing growth rate for over 37 years, the greatest in world history. Why is that and can this continue? What did you learn from the film? Are you surprised at the differences between China then and now?
